Our Upcoming Guided Hiking Trips

Canadian Rockies hiking trails are among the world’s most thrilling. Still, you need to know where to—and where not to—devote your limited time in the Canadian Rocky Mountain national and provincial parks. Only one guidebook fills this crucial need, boldly identifying the best trails and clearly describing the best hikes in Banff, Jasper, Kootenay, Yoho, Mt. Robson, and Mt. Assiniboine parks. With photography as beautiful as a coffee-table book, and writing as entertaining as a novel, no guidebook compares to Don’t Waste Your Time.

Utah canyon country is alluring to hikers because it’s vast, utterly wild, and infinitely complex—attributes that prevent hiking guidebooks from leading you into the convoluted depths. We know. We wrote the bestseller Hiking From Here to Wow: Utah Canyon Country. Since then, we’ve continued unraveling the riddles of high-desert topography. So when you’re ready to explore beyond our book—to experience what you couldn’t on your own—call us: Utah Slickrock Guides. Our dayhikes in Grand Staircase—Escalante National Monument, near Boulder, Utah, are among the world’s most beautiful, fascinating, and fun.
